Measurement of Health Utilities
Direct utility elicitation- very intensive
- A description of the health state
- Surveys to measure preferences: Rating scales, time-
tradeoffs, standard gambles, or person-tradeoffs (for
DALYs)

Indirect: Use of multi-attribute utility functions
- Administer instrument with description of health to
“classify health state”
- Preference weights obtained from population-based
samples

For some conditions, utility weights are available “off
the shelf”
